The pride of being different
BANDERARI PHILOSOPHY BETWEEN QUALITY AND ETHICS
Banderari’s philosophy is rooted in the principle of durability: buy less, buy consciously.
Each of our products is made following an ancient and wise way of doing, based on tailoring and quality through a 100% Made in Italy supply chain.
Following our ethics, as opposed to a trade that consumes clothes and human lives, that of fast fashion.
Economic fashion with very high environmental and social costs based on the debasement and exploitation of our land, of men, women and children.
We rediscover values that are not subject to fads or temporary trends, but focus on the creation of timeless personal styles.
Value education, conscious consumption and the choice of quality over quantity.
Buy less often, take care of your dress, can last a lifetime, can travel through generations, have a story of his own, parallel to yours … and beyond.
Banderari clothing is made entirely by hand by ourselves with the collaboration of a small team of tailors with decades of experience behind them on non-automated machines.
In the medieval quarter of Terni, a stone’s throw from what was Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
Inside a historic building once part of the complex of houses that belonged to the noble Castelli family, as reported by a plaque from 1695.
A space symbol of passion and rebirth miraculously spared from the fury of the bombings that tore the city during the Second World War.
Not a simple shop, but a sort of outside-the-box space-time where it is possible to find a way of doing business from another time.
A relationship based on a return to a more human dimension, a place to establish relationships, where to discuss, exchange impressions and knowledge.
In which trust between the parties, authenticity and transparency are essential cornerstones in order to create a truly unique experience.
A SPACE THAT SPEAKS
An unconventional space outside the box of the canonical and impersonal store, in which each object contains and tells a story deeply linked to the surrounding territory.
Like the red velvet armchairs of the nearby Teatro Verdi or the typographic chest of drawers of the Graphic Arts Celori located in the adjacent Corso Vecchio.
Or better yet the precious trusser belonging to Omar’s uncle, Luigi but for all Luigino, once used to correct photos and prints of the glorious Poligrafico Alterocca and now used to unravel textures and colors of each fabric.
Even today, every morning our hands open with an almost ritual gesture the heavy wooden portals immortalized intact among the rubble of the 500 bombs dropped like destructive rain on 11 August 1943.
The same hands that with their craft and their experience give life to the clothes and accessories you will wear.
